Ice Packs


To dispose of an ice pack, start by checking whether the ice pack is just frozen water or something else. If the ice pack contains anything other than water, thaw it, cut it open and then squeeze the gel into the garbage. Afterward, rinse out the plastic film, dry it and bring it to a plastic bag drop-off.

Check the contents and instructions. Most ice packs can not be poured down the drain. If you accidentally puncture an ice pack or cut it open to empty it, dispose of the mixture in the garbage. Many ice packs are made with materials/chemicals that can clog sinks and toilets.
